9:00 am: Be met in Marseille or Aix en Provence.
Enjoy visiting Aix en Provence. Do not miss out on one of the most famous “Cours” in France, the Cours Mirabeau located in the center of the city, and the heart of Aix. Everywhere, throughout the town, fountains big and small bubble. Medieval Aix was protected by a wall with 39 towers, but today only the 14th century "Tourreluquo" tower remains, at the northwest corner of the town. You may wish to visit the Pavillon Vendôme, a fine example of an elegant "bastide" built in the 17th century. Preceded by a beautiful French garden, the Pavillon Vendôme was built in 1665. Today it is a small museum housing a collection of furniture, paintings and 18th century fabrics. Enjoy lunch at leisure in Aix en Provence at a typical Provencal restaurant. In the afternoon discover the antique town of Arles, the widest city in France.
The city’s monuments are listed as UNESCO World heritage and include the Roman amphitheatre (the arena), the Roman theatre, the Cryptoportico (foundations of the Roman Forum), the Roman baths of Constantine, the remains of the Roman circus, the cloister and portal of St. Trophime and the Alyscamp cemetery. City of festivals, art and culture, Arles has never stopped attracting artists. Picasso, a lover of bullfights, was inspired by them and produced two paintings and 57 drawings. Upon arriving in Arles for the first time every visitor is filled with thoughts of Vincent Van Gogh.
5:00 pm: Return to Marseille or Aix at the end of the afternoon.
